Queezle_Sister from Salt Lake City, UT

This lovely graphic novel is a memoir, a coming of age novel, and a cookbook, all in one. I found great delight reading this; the drawings were sweet, the obvious love for the author's parents was refreshing, and I even relate to the the sometimes embarrassing moments. The love of great food, and guilty pleasure in junk food is all glorified here. The end of each chapter has a recipe, in graphic novel format. I found that I liked this format - as a highly visual person, I think I would make fewer mistakes with a cookbook using that format.

This is a sweet book that would make an excellent gift to someone who perhaps doesn't need another cookbook, but who would love to travel along with the author and be reminded of their own stories. Note that my teenage daughter has also loved this book.
